The Gators won all five field events -- which were conducted first -- and jumped to an early 22-point lead that no one could overcome."If you can run well in a relay meet, you can run well in any type of meet," said Martin, who is in his final season as track and field coach.

1. McDonogh Last season: Ranked No. 2 Postseason: Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association champions Outlook: The Eagles improved in the second half of the indoor season and won the MIAA title. They have depth and talent in just about every part of their lineup. 2. Gilman Last season: Ranked No. 7 Postseason: MIAA finalist Outlook: The Greyhounds are another very deep MIAA team. Gilman has the talent to get past McDonogh - the question is whether it can do it in the title meet.

LANDOVER - The Severna Park girls won their third consecutive Anne Arundel County indoor track championship Tuesday, but it wasn't easy. The No. 4 Falcons earned their usual number of points from distance running, then took advantage of key points from field events and sprints to outlast No. 3 South River and Annapolis. The No. 8 Arundel boys also used a late rally to win their team title, the first for the Wildcats since 1974. The Severna Park girls finished with 119.83 points, beating out South River (117)

At the beginning of the first day of the Class 3A and 4A state track and field championships yesterday at Western Maryland College, several voiced concern about the heat and humidity.But those concerns soon evaporated -- along with the hot weather.Thunderstorms suspended competition for two hours yesterday before a few events eventually got finished -- which will make the schedule on tomorrow's day of competition a little bit busier than usual.The 3,200-meter run plus the 800 and 3,200 relays were the only track events that finished.

LANDOVER - While the Chesapeake-Anne Arundel boys indoor track and field team breezed to victory at the second installment of the Anne Arundel-Baltimore County Challenge at the Prince George's Sports & Learning Complex last night, the girls squad didn't exhale until almost the very end. The Cougars found themselves leading Woodlawn by just four points up until the final event of the night, the 1,600-meter relay. But the Warriors opted to rest their relay crew, paving a lane for Chesapeake to capture the girls competition, 80-74.

Helping in sprints, hurdles, field events and relays, Miles is a big reason the Gaels nearly won the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association title. Miles won MIAA titles in the 55-meter hurdles, the 300 and the long jump. He also ran on the victorious 800 relay team that didn't lose a race all season. In total, he helped score 40 of the Gaels' 151 points in the MIAA meet, as they fell a point shy of Gilman. Miles can also run the 55-meter dash, but he showed his versatility when Mount St. Joseph coach Jack Peach switched him from that event to the long jump in the middle of the season.

Even on cloudy days, the sun continues to shine on the Old Mill boys track and field program. Despite dreary skies that threatened to produce a thunderstorm, the No. 2 Patriots used their skills to capture the Class 4A East region championship at North County High School in Ferndale yesterday. Old Mill, the Anne Arundel County titlist, posted 142 points to collect its third regional crown in the past four years and 19th since 1981. That history of success continues to be major motivation for the Patriots.

Ryan Olkowski is four years and a few pounds from making a serious push at an Olympic berth in the decathlon. Considering his track and field roots, that quest doesn't seem daunting at all. Six years ago, Olkowski was a 148-pound senior at Calvert Hall. Yesterday, he was racing at Stanford University, handling a relay baton on a foursome that was to include Dan O'Brien. Being teamed with the 1996 Olympic gold medalist, even if he is taking his first exploratory steps out of retirement, speaks volumes about Olkowski's potential.

Parkville coach Tim Gavin's pole vault-for-points strategy worked to perfection in last night's Baltimore County/Anne Arundel County Mixer at the Fifth Regiment Armory. Gavin is pushing for girls to learn how to pole vault because it's a way to score points without too much trouble. Parkville came away with 18 points in the vault to stay in contention, and then its 1,600-meter relay team clinched the Mixer's girls championship by winning the night's final event. Old Mill used its longtime formula of points from many places - sprints, distance races and field events - to have an easier time in winning the boys title.

Just maybe the Westminster boys track and field team is a little stronger than even coach Jim Shank believed it would be.The low-key Shank conceded he was impressed by the team's performance in the Westminster Invitational Friday night.The Owls scored points in every event in the seven-team meet to finish first with 151 points.Calvert Hall (123) was second followed by Howard (107 1/2 ), North Carroll and Frederick (45 points each), South Carroll (41 1/2 ), and Liberty (14).In past seasons, Westminster has overwhelmed opponents in track events but has come up short in field events.

LANDOVER - If indoor track and field revolved around sprints alone, Broadneck might be in trouble. But the Bruins showed it was much more than that, using their considerable might in the middle- and long-distance and field events to sweep the boys and girls team portions of an Anne Arundel County meet at the Prince George's Sports and Learning Complex yesterday. The Broadneck boys had a performer in the top three in nine of 13 events en route to a 72-61 defeat of runner-up Old Mill. The girls competition was even more one-sided as the Bruins cruised past runner-up Meade by a whopping 44-point margin and placed a performer in the top three in eight events.
